Help with Uni Selection - Business / Management / Sustainable Finance

Hi,

I'm an international student and have received the following offers for Aug/Sept 2024 start (yes, I started this process late):

Queen Mary University in London:
Master’s in Management

City University of London (Bayes Business School):
Master’s in Sustainable Management and Finance

University of Strathclyde in Glasgow:
Master’s in Sustainable Finance

Oxford Brookes in Oxford:
Master’s in International Business Management

I applied to many programs thinking most would be full at this point in the year and now I'm unsure which to choose. It's not a bad problem to have, but I'd be very grateful for guidance. I have a Bachelor of Arts and work experience but worry I may struggle with some of the math/quant courses.

I'd appreciate any thoughts on which schools are better, considering factors like school reputation, career prospects, networking, student support, teaching, etc. Thank you in advance!

(I still have not heard from: London School of Economics, University of Edinburgh, Kings College, University College London, and Heriot Watt.)
